The philosophy of putting more value in experiences over physical objects is reflected in today's travel trends. The categories of experience that are the most popular include nature, history, arts, reconnection with oneself, sports, food, and drinks. "Some of the most popular experiences in 2018 touched on passion points like meditation, horseback/bike riding, sunsets, pizza, and jazz, and we see that continuing to be a trend in 2019.". Tech Detox basically means to disconnect from any technology and begin a wild adventure in the midst of the unknown. "In an increasingly connected world, more and more travelers are wanting to ditch their devices and get off-the-grid for a tech detox.". Tech Detox means that you get to put your hands on the situation, making you more capable, handy, prepared to encounter situations that show up, building natural self-esteem.

In Beaulieu-sur-Mer and its astonishing surroundings, you have a generous number of choices on how to exchange time for experiences in a manner that is not only budget-friendly but also extremely fulfilling. As long as a simple walk is filled at every corner with some dainty detail or extravagant piece of decoration, a pristine view, or some delicious treat, there is no way to be able to receive as much as it’s given. Its stories talk about abundance and success. About powerful people. It is abundant in culture, taste, style, elegance, and awe. A perfect mixture of old glamor and contemporary visions. It’s like you’d walk through the peak of the Renascence Era.
We love the road that opens up the view with the infinity of the Sea, buckled up with a rich variety of cuisines and attractive terraces. From there, we walk to The Rue Jean Bracco where you can find Olivaie Garden, which invites the entrance with its old-fashioned stairs. In mythology, the olive tree was the gift of Athena for humans. Athena, being the Goddess of Wisdom, created the perfect gift, so that it is a renewable source and it is a powerful raw material for a variety of uses: treatments and beauty, food, fire, material to build. It’s a symbol of prosperity, ancient wisdom, and peace. Greeks named their city to honor her back.
One of our most beloved recommendations for a well enjoyed day on the Riviera would be a picnic on a hill, reachable and time-effective with a bike, having all the spectacle that the Sea provides, at a glance. Enjoying, perhaps, a socca, thinking how this nutty pitta is one symbol that remained legacy, just as Picasso’s Mansion, where the artist came to find his peace of mind and inspiration. Or Nietzsche's road which reminds of morality and courage. Socca is a symbol that reminds us of intensely lived lives, a mark of significance, an imprint of time. Or, put in another way, tasting the same socca that Picasso ate, in its Art Studio. Feeling the warm breeze of summer from the canopy’s shade, beautiful roses' aromas gently tickle the senses, inviting a timid smile of contentment on the lips’ corners.
One of the leading media influences, “France today” magazine, writes about ways of exploring “off the beaten paths”, this beautiful corner of Paradise. It highlights the importance of being present and engaged in the suave flow of glamour, from every perspective. And encourages the discovery of hidden gems that are accessible by using your own power of guidance.
When off the hill, the means to put everything on perspective, but from another point of view, is from the boat. You can easily spot the wavy curvatures of hills, combined with steep slopes, spiced up with gorgeous villas and seafront roads that connect everything. When the sun goes down, the scenery gets even more spectacular. The lights of the day get transformed into darker shades and different consistencies. The city lights up in different manner, showing another side of the metaphor of human experiences.
The Star-Attraction of Beaulieu sur Mer is Maurice-Rouvier Promenade. It’s the unofficial border between the natural creation and the creation of man. It takes you alongside the Sea, presenting you the marvels of the seashore, the heights of the hills and mountains, the city, and the people. It also gives you a direction and a destination. The promenade is 1,3 km in length and it takes 20 minutes to walk between Beaulieu and Saint Jean Cap Ferrat. There are all sorts of landscapes that you catch on the way. Rocky arrangements, greeneries with shades, walls with flowers, and a lot of sunshine. The road takes you to Villa Les Cèdres, a historic French villa of a passed actor from Saint Jean Cap Ferrat. Estimated to be the most expensive property for sale in 2019, it was bought by the richest Ukrainian and billionaire Rinat Akhmetov for $221 million (a pretty impressive amount, huh?)
In terms of activities, La Petite Afrique and La Baie des Fourmis beaches have submerged diving platforms, restaurant and beach bar, lifeguard service, watersports clubs, sanitary groups. They have anti-jellyfish netting for surprise meetings. You can even find a play area for kids and it’s placed beside the beach volleyball court, near the Petite Afrique.
The personality that had an unusual impact on Beaulieu was Gordon Bennett. A man, so paradoxical that remained in history, not only as one of the first pillars that raised the village but also as an expression of astonishment. Besides his crazily free attitude, he was a generous man, making kind gestures or exceptionally large donations towards random strangers or towards the people that he had a feeling of guilt over his drunken episodes. Just to mention a few of these episodes: he peed in the fireplace at one of the parties that his parents-in-law hold. The wedding was canceled because of this. He was sent off by the fireman with the pressure water hose in his attempt to „coordinate” a fire intervention. He was so ashamed the next day when he didn’t even remember these facts, that he bought new coats for all the firefighters. He also opened up a soup and sandwich kitchen during the Panic of 1873 to ensure that no one is starving.
